Consignment terms and conditions
Rhythmic Rentals, LLC
Our promise to you!
Rhythmic Rentals has a huge selection of ballroom dresses for rent, an unmatched reputation for customer service and satisfaction, and are referred to by a wide range dance studios across the country. We promise to promote and offer your dress to our customers as if it were our own.
How it Works
Email us digital pictures and any associated dress details. Please include the following: Designer (if known); Dress Size; Dress Age; Original Price of dress (if known); Selling Price (if applicable); Dress condition; any additional dress details.
We review the dress and if it looks like something we feel matches our inventory and will appeal to our customer base, we ask consignee to ship the dress to us (you are responsible for shipping fees to us and return fees if necessary).
We then grade the dress A, B or C. Grade A being the best shape with little or no touch-ups needed. Grades B and C will involve extra fees – we will provide the fee which can be accepted or declined. If the dress is not up to the standards we want to carry, it will be shipped back (sometimes it will be difficult to tell from a picture what the quality/overall condition is like, especially for cases where the designer is not known).
Once we agree to carry the dress, we take our own pictures (front, back, close-ups), publish them to our website and keep them safely stored at our location – we will treat them exactly as we treat our own dresses – they will be just like our own inventory but the consignee continues to own the dress.
Consignee can still use their dress whenever they want, as long as it is available (does not interfere with existing try-ons or reservations). A cleaning/handling fee of $50 will be charged along with any shipping charges in this case. If the dress is available, we’ll schedule and reserve it just as we would for any other dress.
Email your dress details to us at email@example.com.
Register you dresses and accept these terms and conditions.
Provide a valid credit card.
Make sure the dress has been professionally cleaned prior to sending dress to us. Otherwise, there will be a $50 cleaning fee per dress.
Send the dress to Rhythmic Rentals, 4108 Tansley Court, Greensboro, NC 27407. Email us shipping details.
